I am trying to send a digital signature and encryption from my OWA. There is not an icon for me to select those features. Is there a way I can enable this? I do not have office 365.

Why is "not secure" showing up on the address bar of my OWA?

    Hi @Smil-ey ,

    Per my knowledge, if we open the document in a browser, there are a lot of functional limitations.

    As mentioned in this article, online editing does not support send a digital signature and encryption,you need to use these more features in desktop applications:

    Regarding the second question, we want to confirm:

    1. Does "Not secure" appear only when the document is opened, and not at other times?
    2. What browser are you using? You could try to use other browsers to see if it works normally.
    3. Usually, if the http protocol is used, similar insecure prompts may appear. You can check whether the url uses http:// or https://.
